Its third hotel, the Courthouse in Knutsford, has been closed by administrators.

The Vicarage in Cranage is a 23-bedroom property, which sits on the banks of the River Dane, and features a restaurant, bar and surround sound sports bar.

The Bridge is a 27-bedroom hotel and restaurant located on the banks of the River Bollin in the Cheshire village of Prestbury. Its riverside gardens feature an outdoor bar, which has made it a popular wedding location.

"The properties are available as a package or individually and we anticipate wide-ranging interest from investors and operators both national and independent," said Tom O'Malley, associate director – hotel broker at Christie & Co.
